Following the unhinged rant by Congresswoman Maxine Waters, someone decided to open fire on a group of Minneapolis National Guard and police officers on Sunday, injuring two. Now, a suspect has been arrested and charged for the crime.
Andrew Thomas, 28, has been charged as a felon in possession of a firearm. He will appear Tuesday before Magistrate Judge Katherine M. Menendez in U.S. District Court. According to a DoJ press release:
According to the allegations in the criminal complaint, during the early morning hours of April 18, 2021, a team of Minnesota National Guard soldiers, along with an officer of the Minneapolis Police Department, was stationed at the corner of Penn Avenue North and West Broadway Avenue in Minneapolis. At approximately 4:20 a.m., a light-colored SUV driving on West Broadway Avenue fired multiple shots at the team. One bullet went through the windshield of the team’s military vehicle, which held four soldiers. Two soldiers of the Minnesota National Guard sustained minor injuries: one was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries from shattered glass; the other was treated at the scene for superficial wounds.
The criminal complaint also alleges that during the late evening hours of April 18, 2021, Minneapolis Police officers patrolling the area of 6th Street South and Cedar Avenue South encountered a 2002 Ford Explorer that matched the description of the SUV involved in the shooting. After conducting a felony stop of the vehicle, the driver, later identified as THOMAS, and a juvenile passenger, were placed in separate police cars. After obtaining a search warrant for the vehicle, officers recovered from the vehicle a Springfield Armory XD-9 9mm semi-automatic pistol, a .22 caliber revolver with an obliterated serial number, ammunition, and two discharged cartridge casings. Because THOMAS has a prior felony conviction in Hennepin County, he is prohibited under federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition at any time.
This arrest not only helps keep the peace in Minneapolis, but also highlights one of the challenges with the gun control narrative. Here is a situation in which a felon who was not permitted to buy or own a firearm was able to circumvent the law. He was even able to acquire at least one firearm that was, itself, illegal to own. More gun laws will not stop violence. They will only work to disarm law-abiding citizens.
Minneapolis continues to burn, but law enforcement is working towards reestablishing peace by making arrests. According to The Police Tribune:
At least two Minnesota National Guard members were injured in a drive-by shooting and more than 100 rioters were arrested in a single night as violent uprisings continue to take the Twin Cities metropolitan area by storm.
An undisclosed number of Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) troopers are being sent to Minneapolis to assist with the mobs at the request of Minnesota Highway Patrol and Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, WBNS reported.

Brooklyn Center city officials tried to drop its mandatory curfew on Friday night for the first time since the fatal officer-involved shooting of Daunte Wright on April 11, according to National Review.
Now-former Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kimberly Potter, a 26-year veteran of the department, allegedly shot Wright by mistake and intended to tase him while he was resisting arrest during a traffic stop that day, according to police.
Potter has since resigned from the force and has been arrested for second-degree manslaughter.
Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliot’s attempt to forgo the curfew on April 16 failed miserably and rioters turned out in droves, National Review reported.
With a verdict expected soon in the Derek Chauvin trial, Minneapolis law enforcement prepare for the worst while Black Lives Matter and Antifa domestic terrorists prepare to destroy everything they can.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
